The Bakers Pig, run by Liz and Andrew Baker, produce an award-winning range of gluten-free cured meats and fermented salamis from their homereared pigs, raised on their traditional, hill side farm located on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
When Liz enrolled in Lilwen’s empowerment workshop, they were facing a number of challenges; “covid-19 presented a lot of challenges and sent me into a bit of a panic about money. Six weeks before the workshop started, the curing chamber had broken and we lost £4,000 worth of goods overnight which had knocked my confidence a lot. I was doubting my own decision making skills
“I hadn’t worked with a coach before so I didn’t really know what to expect from working with a business coach or the workshop but working with Lilwen was brilliant. She is really good at picking apart the layers and helping you recognise what the real issue is underneath that’s been affecting you. She knows what questions to ask to get you to think deeply about the issue and what you’re facing.”
“I didn’t really know what to expect so I didn’t have expectations really but after the first session, I knew that it was going to be really helpful.”
Would you recommend Lilwen as a business coach?
“Yes absolutely! I gained so much from the sessions.”
We had a group session to begin with, which was very helpful to see the challenges the other business owners were facing and a number of 1-2-1 sessions.

“Due to the grind of life, I had stopped setting goals as it was another thing to fail at and I stopped because my confidence was low but working with Lilwen has helped me regain my confidence and positive mindset and allowed me to start setting goals again as they’re something to aim for, something to help keep me focused.”
“We have seen increased profit as well. Christmas was a good time for us. We were also part of a BBC farming programme which helped increase sales. This was something Lilwen encouraged us to take part in – ‘As it can only be good for you-right?’ I also signed up for some SEO help, which I wouldn’t have done if it wasn’t for working with Lilwen.”
